Strong Criminal Defense Against Possession Charges
Some people consider drug possession charges to be minor offenses, particularly those involving marijuana. Those people often end up facing life-changing consequences because they failed to take action and fight the charges. They were left to deal with serious penalties and a criminal record that may haunt them for the rest of their lives.
In Wilmington and throughout North Carolina, drug possession charges are taken seriously. If you have been accused of possessing any illegal substance, you should contact an experienced attorney at The Law Office of L. Bryan Smith, P.C. We offer free consultations and will get started immediately in protecting your record and your future.
How Strong Is The Evidence?
Law enforcement and prosecutors in drug offense cases will always make it seem as though they have strong evidence against you. But do they really?
Perhaps you were pulled over and police searched your vehicle, finding drugs in your possession. Did they have the right to pull you over? Was there reasonable suspicion? Did they handle the search and seizure properly, or were your constitutional rights violated? We know that cases can be won simply by reviewing the way that police handled the initial stop and arrest. If anything was done incorrectly, we will seek dismissal of the charges.
We have the experience to examine the evidence, and law enforcement’s handling of the evidence, from every angle. Improperly weighed and mishandled evidence can put serious holes in the case against you, and we can use those holes to build a winning case.
